This beautifully restored historic mansion is located in Seattle, WA and situated on nearly half an acre of land. It was built in 1933 and features approximately 6,820 square feet of living space (I’m sure that’s not including the lower level and pool house) with 3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 2-story foyer with sweeping staircase, formal living room with fireplace and dining alcove, formal dining room, sunken family room with fireplace and wet bar, gourmet kitchen, recreation room, wine cellar and more. Outdoor features include a rooftop patio with fireplace, gated entry and courtyard, elevated pool deck, swimming pool with spa, sports court, outdoor kitchen with fireplace and sitting area, terraced gardens and a detached 4-car garage with pool house above (includes a skylight, living room, kitchen and a bathroom).

    Such a cool view. Exterior looks a bit like a bank. Interior is nice but a bit on the boring/forgettable side.

    I haven’t been in this house, yet. But, I really like it. It’s well-hidden from the street in spite of the neighborhood being high density and the view is a typically amazing Seattle view. If you ever watched the TV show Frasier, the backdrop for his apartment was taken just up the hill and across the main road at Kerry Park; IOW, a very similar view. There’s another at-least-2-car garage under the house, with an entry directly from the street. The interior is typical Northwest, but has actually been warmed up quite a bit and looks very comfortable (although it could stand a little more personalization).

    This is owned by the former chairman of a local construction company that has built several high profile projects, including the new headquarters for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Olympic Sculpture Park, the Space Gallery at the Museum of Flight, and Bill Gates’ house in Medina.

    I think the price is overly ambitious. This house on the same size lot, and 40% larger, has been on the market off and on since 2009: http://www.cbbain.com/Homes/WA/Seattle/619-W-Comstock-St-98119/517830 Both are nice houses, but the Comstock house is in a more desirable location, has a better view, and is almost $5,000,000 less.
